Therapy Pool Installed At Oasis in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Therapy pools have proven to be a great way for people to get back on their feet after an accident.


Oasis Physical Therapy in Pasco recently installed one. Therapy pools allow patients who have difficulty exercising on land work out with reduced weight on their bones and joints. 

The pool provides a variety of exercises and can fit 6 people comfortably. 


"We have an underwater treadmill that lets people walk against resistance, because we have an endless current that we can increase the speed so that people can walk against that, we also have dumb bells that people can use, we also have a deep water pit that we can do spinal decompression,"says Oasis Physical Therapy Owner Mindi Irvine.

Oasis will be partnering with Pasco Parks and Rec to offer classes to the public beginning in September.
